Movie Details of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
Lyrics: Anand Bakshi
Label: Saregama HMV
Director: Aditya Chopra
Considered one of Yash Raj Films' biggest grossers ever, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge was also the composers Jatin-Lalit's first outing with the production house. The romantic musical had the duo, along with veteran lyricist Anand Bakshi (their first collaboration with the man), produce some of the tunes that they are most remembered by – tracks like Tujhe Dekha and Mehndi Lagaa Ke Rakhna are counted among the definitive songs in their respective genres, from 90s Bollywood. The latter, in its movie version, even had a neat incorporation of another legendary wedding song from one of Yash Chopra's earliest hits: Ae Meri Zohra Jabeen.
Best Song of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge: The boisterous Ruk Jaa O Dil Deewane had SRK's onscreen antics sort of reminiscent of Shammi Kapoor songs, while Jatin-Lalit in their brass and guitar led orchestration threw back to Pancham's works from the same era. Bakshi's words and Udit Narayan's singing perfectly reflected the frivolous nature of Khan's character.
